Update: Gas repair at Gilesgate Travelodge, Durham

Engineers from Northern Gas Networks have repaired a gas main at the Travelodge hotel on Gilesgate, Durham  after a gas escape was reported on Tuesday, 16 August.

No guests were present in the hotel at the time so no rooms were evacuated, and gas supply was restored as soon as the work was completed.

Barry Brightman, Emergency Officer for Northern Gas Networks said: “We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience and thank members of the public for their patience.”
